Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Showed up to find front desk behind thick glass. Large amount of young men out in parking lot. Did not feel safe to leave car. Bad neighborhood? Left and went to another hotel. Still had to pay but didnt care.

Asked for non smoking. Tried to give me room upstairs with stairs. I'm 65 and disabled, changed to down stairs for me. The room reeked of a smoker. Could not use the shower as it had a high tub and shower. Couldn't step over tub to get into shower

Dear guest, we are shocked to read about your stay with us. As you mentioned, there should not be any smoking in that room at all. We are sorry that this was not the case. We wish you had mentioned the smell issue to our staff, and we would have gladly switched your rooms to another room downstairs to ensure...

“Ask to see the room first, before you pay! We booked through Travelocity, so paid upfront, otherwise, I would not have stayed here. The girl at the front desk is really nice. That was about it. The location is nice, but wouldn't pay more than $29 for a room like this.”

“For the same price, if there are rooms available, I would recommend a few exits down and stay at the Days Inn on Mollison (where I've stayed several times in the past) in an actual non smoking room, with a pool, indoor hot tub and a friendly staff. Hope this review is helpful! : )”
